Prologic’s Brand and Product Manager, Enrico Parmeggiani has been targeting some of Finland’s wild and unknown waters in pursuit of pristine, uncaught carp.
“I’ve been fishing three different lakes but one in particular produced some really good results with carp up to 17.8kg (around 39lb). This may sound like a standard weight in Europe, but believe me, in a country where lakes are frozen 4-5 months of the year, this is a true specimen!
No bivvy, chair or bedchair here as most of the time you need to hike half an hour between swamp and forest, so I had to review my gear and travel as light as possible, sleeping in an ultra-light trekking tent on an air mattress. A different way of doing it and not comfortable at all, but really worth the effort in the end!”
